Side Product 03:05
I whisper in her ear "which one do you desire tonight?" she smiles and then she points him out I say, "as you command" and then I bring him 'round to her, "take our hands" we keep a default boy she says he's just a toy but all the other boys are lining up to take his place she's teaching me to dance she's teaching me to sing he wants to fall in love, but he is just a fling he wants to fall in love, but he is just a fling he wants to fall in love, but he is just a Side product of the main reaction and when he touches her, her eyes are always fixed on me. Side product of the main reaction I know I love her but my body has different needs. Side product of the main reaction and when he touches me, her eyes are always fixed on me. I scan the crowd again I let the mob's desire alight, I smile. And they're all too aware of how it isn't fair we're the most beautiful creatures there, she and I we move like we could fly we kiss like we might break and then I turn around and make another body ache I'm teaching her to smile I'm teaching her to swing he wants to fall in love, but he is just a fling he wants to fall in love, but he is just a fling he wants to fall in love, but he is just a Side product of the main reaction and when he touches her, her eyes are always fixed on me. Side product of the main reaction I know I love her but my body has different needs. Side product of the main reaction and when he touches me, her eyes are always fixed on me. he can't decide if he is lucky or hypnotized he gets the feeling that he's being objectified he wants to fall in love, it's written there on his face but neither one of us are looking at his face 'cause he's a Side product of the main reaction and when he touches her, her eyes are always fixed on me. Side product of the main reaction I know I love her but my body has different needs. Side product of the main reaction and when he touches me, her eyes are always fixed on me.

Osiris 05:02
shut up Osiris just lay back, don't protest keep your comments to yourself and leave me the rest you don't have to tell me it's your first time you don't have to tell me that you're terrified I can see from the way the goosebumps rise I can see from the way you tighten I can see from the way you shut your eyes and the way your hands clench into fists at your sides give into me, my darling give into me again and again give into me, my darling again and again and again and again shut up, Osiris don't want your modest lies your words are nothing to the sound of your sighs and your body trembles like a butterfly's wings you reach for me with such a desperate glance watch again as I bring you to the brink you are mine in this peculiar dance give into me, my darling give into me again and again give into me, my darling again and again and again and again no more delaying, darling you want it so do I and this time I'm not stopping 'til we're both satisfied give into me, my darling give into me again and again give into me, my darling again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again no more delaying, darling you want it so do I and this time I'm not stopping and this time I'm not stopping 'til we're both satisfied 'til we're both satisfied

After Sunset 05:02
Sometimes your hand is hard to take Your fingers, hungry, lick my face Sometimes your body wants a taste Before I put you in your place Sometimes you stay up late at night You say you don't want me to win Admit you like to tell these lies and lose again, again, again Oh in the morning, you're a prince with velvet coat and silken tie The office girls are all convinced You're looking for a trophy wife But after sunset you are waiting waiting for my shadow calling waiting for the feel of falling waiting, just to be denied Sometimes I don't want control No, I want to be your princess and then I push your shoulders down and lock you in your harness You're a beast and I, your Master wrapped in chains you're thirsting faster You're the tart and I, your pastor wiping lipstick from the plaster (And then I push your shoulders down better not to make a sound then I push your shoulders oh yes, I push you down) Sometimes your breath comes hard and fast You ask me how long this can last Sometimes I have to shut your eyes Before they swallow me alive And in the morning you're a prince with silver tongue and easy guile You hide the aching in your skin under imported suits and smiles But after sunset you are waiting waiting for my shadow calling waiting for the feel of falling waiting, just to be denied You're a beast and I, your Master wrapped in chains you're thirsting faster You're the tart and I, your pastor wiping lipstick from the plaster And you can crave a soul to devour But you won't find it here, in this place And you can starve on the altar of power You know I'll satisfy, if you wait Now the stakes are higher than ever Because the thrill is all you know And your heart is part of the wager But the dice are mine to throw Sometimes I don't want control No, I want to be your princess and then I push your shoulders down and lock you in your harness You're a beast and I, your Master wrapped in chains you're thirsting faster You're the tart and I, the pastor wiping lipstick from the plaster

Machine 03:04
My eyes are bifocal My hands are sub jointed I live in the future In my prewar apartment And I count all my blessings I have friends in high places And I'm upgraded daily All my wires without traces I'm hooked into hooked into Hooked into machine Hooked into machine Hooked into machine I'm hooked into Hooked into machine I collect my moments Into a correspondence With a mightier power Who just lacks my perspective And who lacks my organics And who covets my defects And I'm downloaded daily I am part of a composite I'm hooked into, hooked into Hooked into machine Hooked into machine Hooked into machine I'm hooked into Hooked into machine Everything's provided Consummate consumer Part of worldly taking Apart from worldly troubles Living in your prewar apartment Soon to be your postwar apartment And you lived in the future And the future It's here It's bright It's now

Night time is calling me away from The logic of my wise decisions Cause my mind is blind in the darkness And lovers are monsters who lie with a kiss In the mornin’ I’m a genius Sittin’ in an office Far away from ghosts and conspiracies Doing lotsa hard stuff With my three diplomas Yeah, let’s just say you believe me Night time is sneaking me away from Once obvious interpretations Chasing my dreams in the daylight Turns into a hellfire in clever disguise In the mornin’ I’m a genius Sittin’ in an office Far away from demons and trust betrayed We talk of medication But I am not your patient And I can stay quiet and compensate Oh! Unforgivable— Little witch from a bygone empire, What magic you’ve forsaken? Sinful was your abdication Fairytales are all that matter Promises I have unlearned, from Merciless fables to children Say “Why not stay pure for the unicorn? The hardworking carthorse inherits the horn.” In the morning I’m a dossier Wishing for a world where Merit isn’t tied to morality But I, too, ate the apple And I stormed the castle And in it was an office and three Degrees. Oh! Unforgivable! For the heart of a child is what brought you. False lover of immortals, Crawl back through the elven portal Fairytales are all that matter It’s been so long that I cowered in silence Raised on the myth and the violence Suffer for your destiny girl Portal to a magical world It’s nothing but a marketing campaign Happy’s left for the ever after, sucker It's funny these lies can feel so believable Crazed, you give all that you're able Suffer for the make-believe rules Understand the meaning of Fool Guess I better start it all over or Happy's left for the ever after

Breedless 03:38
I suffer from an inhuman condition Almost empty of my empathy Whisper mantras for compassion I am losing the human in me Maybe my mother was a Hydra Maybe my father Unseelie Maybe my family came from Lycia I can't deny the other creatures in me I am not whole I am unkind I'm not like Eve But I feel fine My blood is not pure My body, untrue And I'd rather be breedless Than be like you Too many people Too many signals Too many egos Too much greed Too many footprints Too much forgotten Too many luxuries disguised as needs I fought with Adam In the garden I tried to warn him long ago Now in this strange world Who are the monsters? How can you tell? How will you know? I am not whole I am unkind I'm not like Eve But I feel fine My blood is not pure My body, untrue And I'd rather be breedless Than be like you

Maps 02:40
Pack up I'm strayed Enough Oh say say say Oh say say say Oh say say say Oh say say say Oh say say say Wait, they don't love you like I love you Wait, they don't love you like I love you Maps Wait, they don't love you like I love you Made off Don't stray My kind's your kind I'll stay the same Pack up Don't stray Oh say say say Oh say say say Wait, they don't love you like I love you Wait, they don't love you like I love you Maps Wait, they don't love you like I love you Wait, they don't love you like I love you Maps Wait, they don't love you like I love you Wait, they don't love you like I love you Wait, they don't love you like I love you Maps Wait, they don't love you like I love you Wait, they don't love you like I love you Maps Wait, they don't love you like I love you

And who are you, the proud lord said, that I must bow so low? Only a cat of a different coat, that's all the truth I know. In a coat of gold or a coat of red, a lion still has claws, And mine are long and sharp, my Lord, as long and sharp as yours. And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere, But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear. Yes, now the rains weep o'er his hall, and not a soul to hear.

There was a king who ruled the land His majesty was in command With silver eyes the scarlet eagle Showers silver on the people Oh mother, tell me more Why'd'ya have to leave me there Hanging in my infant air Waiting? You only have to read the lines They're scribbly black and everything (shines) Across the stream with wooden shoes With bells to tell the king the news A thousand misty riders climb up Higher once upon a time Wandering and dreaming The words have different meaning Yes they did For all the time spent in that room The doll's house, darkness, old perfume And fairy stories held me high on Clouds of sunlight floating by Oh mother, tell me more Tell me more

There's a humming in the restless summer air And we're slipping off the course that we prepared But in all chaos, there is calculation Dropping glasses just to hear them break You've been drinking like the world was gonna end (it didn't) Took a shiner from the fist of your best friend (go figure) It's clear that someone's gotta go We mean it, but I promise we're not mean And the cry goes out (ha) They lose their minds for us, and how it plays out (ha) Now we're in the ring and we're coming for blood You could try and take us (oh-oh) But we're the gladiators (Oh! Oh!) Everyone a rager (oh-oh) But secretly they're saviors Glory and gore go hand in hand That's why we're making headlines (Oh! Oh!) You could try and take us (oh-oh) But victory's contagious Delicate in every way but one (the swordplay) God knows we like archaic kinds of fun (the old way) Chance is the only game I play with, baby We let our battles choose us And the cry goes out (ha oh) They lose their minds for us and how it plays out (ha oh) Now we're in the ring and we're coming for blood You could try and take us (oh-oh) But we're the gladiators (Oh! Oh!) Everyone a rager (oh-oh) But secretly they're saviors Glory and gore go hand in hand That's why we're making headlines (Oh! Oh!) You could try and take us (oh-oh) But victory's contagious No-one 'round here's good at keeping their eyes closed The sun's starting to light up when we're walking home Tired little laughs, gold lie promises, We'll always win at this, I don't ever think about death It's alright if you do, it's fine We gladiate but I guess we're really fighting ourselves Roughing up our minds so we're ready when the kill time comes Wide awake in bed, words in my brain, "Secretly you love this, do you even wanna go free?" Let me in the ring, I'll show you what that big word means You could try and take us (oh-oh) But we're the gladiators (Oh! Oh!) Everyone a rager (oh-oh) But secretly they're saviors Glory and gore go hand in hand That's why we're making headlines (Oh! Oh!) You could try and take us (oh-oh) But victory's contagious

Still Alive 03:03
This was a triumph. I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS. It's hard to overstate My satisfaction. Aperture Science We do what we must Because we can. For the good of all of us. Except the ones who are dead. But there's no sense crying Over every mistake. You just keep on trying Till you run out of cake. And the Science gets done. And you make a neat gun. For the people who are Still alive. I'm not even angry. ... I'm being so sincere right now. ... Even though you broke my heart. And killed me. And tore me to pieces. And threw every piece into a fire. As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you! Now these points of data Make a beautiful line. And we're out of beta. We're releasing on time. So I'm GLaD. I got burned. Think of all the things we learned For the people who are Still alive. ... Go ahead and leave me. I think I prefer to stay inside. ... Maybe you'll find someone else To help you. Maybe Black Mesa... THAT WAS A JOKE, HA HA, FAT CHANCE. ... Anyway this cake is great It's so delicious and moist Look at me still talking when there's science to do When I look out there It makes me glad I'm not you I've experiments to be run There is research to be done On the people who are Still alive. And believe me I am still alive I'm doing science and I'm still alive I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive And while you're dying I'll be still alive And when you're dead I will be still alive Still alive Still alive

about

Psyche Corporation's 6th album, this EP contains 4 original songs and 7 covers; the first Psyche Corp. studio album to contain cover songs. These songs were all originally supported over the course of the first 4 years of Psyche Corporation's Patreon presence. Special thanks goes to a small group of patrons whose support made these creative works possible. Although several songs were developed during 2017-2020 and distributed to Patreon supporters, the core 6 songs (Side Product, Osiris, After Sunset, Machine, What Magic You've Forsaken, and Breedless) were Psyche's favorites.

A Kickstarter campaign was set up in May 2020 to fund the purchase of licenses for the two cover songs. (as well as audio mastering fees), with a top-level reward option that included the ability to influence addition of other cover songs Psyche Corporation had completed in the past and never commercially released before. Ultimately, the campaign was very successful, and the album managed to grow from 6 core songs to the 11-tracker presented here.

The additional 5 covers were selected/made possible by Kickstarter backers Elric (Rains of Castamere), Arioch Morningstar (Matilda Mother), Ari (Still Alive), Kiarrith (Glory and Gore), and Joey Windsor (Maps).
